    Slide potentiometer query

    I wish to build a cowl flap lever for my A2A 182, and would like to use a slide potentiometer. I'm a bit confused as to which sort I should get, that is to say, Linear taper or Log. I dont know the difference. I presume it will be a 10Kohm unit. It will be linked through a Bodnar BU0836X card.

    thanks,

    Neil

    You should get a linear taper. Log potentiometers are primarily used for audio applications.

    Hi Martin,
    Thanks for the quick reply. Linear taper it is then.
    Cheers,
